House At Pooh Corner (Redux)

Filosofa's Word

I have played this one only once before, in July 2018.  Now, as then, I think we all need a bit of relief from the things that fill our minds, a bit of a reminder of the simplicity of life.  Who better to provide that relief than Winnie the Pooh and Kenny Loggins?

About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty-five years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about. I was a live guest on the Kelly Clarkson Show. I am highlighted in the seventh edition of Jim Trelease's million-copy bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital, and the Massachusetts State House in Boston.

    I had never heard of that Country singer’s song about Winnie The Pooh. What a strange combination. 🙂
    This is the real Pooh Corner, that you can actually visit.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      The song is ever-popular here, and has been for decades. It is loved by children and adults alike (me included). It is America’s musical link to Winnie the Pooh. Thank you for the wonderful link, Pete. I know I’ve told you children’s book, “Finding Winnie” which is the true story of the real bear. Best to you, Pete.
